My archives suggest GLLUG has not had a meetup since mid-2016. I shiver 
to think folk might all be on a discord server without me knowing and so 
real life meet-ups are no longer necessary!

Cheese - I was a games dev in the late 80s/early 90s: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvjlzntgIEE, and I've been all Linux 
since the mid 90s: I'd love to meet up even in the absence of wider 
interest here - Ottawa is a travel plan as I've relations there.
